This a a great recipe for kids who are learning to cook. When the meat loaves cook, the rice pokes out like hedgehog spikes.
- 1 lb ground beef or 1 lb ground turkey
- 1⁄2 cup uncooked white rice
- 1⁄4 cup chopped onion
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
- 1⁄2 cup water (approximately, I use 1/2 of empty can to measure)
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- salt & pepper
- Mix the ground beef or turkey, rice and onion together-- salt and pepper as you wish.
- Form into 8 "hedgehog" shapes, and line the hedgehogs up in a casserole dish.
- Mix the soup, water and Worcestershire sauce together and pour it over the hedgehogs.
- Cover the casserole dish with foil.
- Bake at 350°F for 1 hour and 15 minutes, occasionally spooning sauce over the hedgehogs.
These were yummy, and so cute! The kids really enjoyed them. I have a similar recipe called porcupine meatballs. The taste of the tomato soup, worcestershire, and rice is a very good combination! Would make these again!
This was one of THE easiest recipes I have made, and what's better yet...They are delicious. Abby is so picky when it comes to meat, but she gobbled these up and asked for more. Hubby loved them too. I served these with garlic sour cream mashed potatoes and let me just say we were all in Heaven. Thanks mox.
Thank you - your great suggestions for kid friendly meals was appreciated. This was very good - the youngsters were impressed with the prickly spikes poking up from the hedgehogs - but your recipe#130868 was the winner hands down! Will definetley be making this again but for the younger set will go with a teaspoon of the Worcestershire next time around. The spikes really impress the little ones so it's a good one when needing something special for the little ones. Thank you for sharing.
